    Look KG176 > any info?

    Hey Guys,

    Just bought a vintage Look KG176 with Shamal wheels and mostly Campagnolo Chorus... Trying to find some info on the net and I can't find anything. On the frame it says: Titanium Equipped.

    I think it is the successor of the KG171...

    Maybe you have a nice threat or website about it.

    (can't remember the source, but)
    heard KG176 is fundamentally same design with the famous KG171 using new and lighter "high-modulus" CF.
    info on KG171 can be found here and there, could be a clue?
    ex) http://www.ridenice.se/Look_historia.html

    a big fan of old-school Look design myself.
    but it's always hard to find some coherent infos around that marquee.
    will add if i find more. good luck.

    beautiful bike, congrats!

    Thanks! Just found some info... The frame is used after the KG171 and was only in use with Pro-teams (such as ONCE). I'm thinking of selling the frame, what do you guys think it is worth?

    nothing to add here except that that is a beautiful bike!
    Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.
    Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.
